Wow O Wow
Can barely believe it
Still on Earth
Surely thought I'd leave it

Wow O Wow
Can remember long ago
When I was a small girl
My nickname "Sissy"
Somehow it fit me back then
When my oldest brother
Was my best friend

Wow O Wow
Can do a dance
Put on a tight belt
Cowboy boots
Levi pants
My back can take it
If not
I'll fake it
Keep moving

Wow O Wow
Can it be
Moderation is the key
Someone smart
Once told me
That fact
There back and
Forward
In my mind
On the fence
Between the devil and
Divine

Wow O Wow
Can others shame
As I can do
In this life game
It's why I date and time
This poetry
It's only how I felt
At a time
In this eternity
Don't read my anger
If it's going to linger
In your soul
Way I let frustration go

Wow O Wow
Can it be true
I sit on the pity pot
To brew
Anyway to get rid of pain
The more I have to live with
The more my life is cruel and insane
I'm only 19 in soul
Time goes on and body rolls
As it can
Not as my mind demands
Living in the past
I am not made to last
Forever!

Wow O Wow
Can everyone be beautiful
In their own way
Then maybe
Sissy Sixties Ladies
Wouldn't want to run away
Behind a computer screen
Where younger pictures
Invade the scene
There is age discrimination
I try to think like nineteen


Wow O Wow
Can they have gone
Men I've loved or befriended
For years on
I find they've died
Here come some tears
Greg Loftus
Greg Kayalla
Eugene Hodson
Tim Casper
Kim Casper
Jimmy Wages
Michael Sadler
Jason Lammons
It gets difficult to think
When people even
Younger than you
Die
Know I don't want
Heroic
Measures
Now
However
The will to live is strong
In the human species

Wow O Wow
Can it be all about music
Yes
It can
Do better living in a
Hick-Hop Candyland
Where big tires
Mud
Boots covered in crud
Rule the land
Those back-wood
Southern Country
Rap men
Turn me to 19 again
Then you can kiss my a$$
If you don't like my kind of class
Because they do
To hell with you
Be well with you
Pray somehow
Wow O Wow.
